UP2U is held in observance of Children’s Mental Health Awareness Day and is designed to raise awareness and reduce stigma surrounding mental health issues while providing a fun, free and family friendly setting to learn and connect with community resources.  Mental Health Awareness - it's up to me, it's up to us, it's UP2U! 

Last year we had over 1,000 attendees, 50 resource booths, 100 volunteers and immeasurable fun!  Join us in making this year's event the best one yet!
